Another Pizza Party - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Another Pizza Party

    These pics are from mid July, we had a group of about 24 people, made around 30 pies. I'll split the pics into two posts, first ones to do with prep, the other of the party

    Dough prep - 2 pics, trying these plastic bowls out, mixed results so far

    Grilling veggies

    Cooking Italian sausage fully

    1- Cooking away

    2 - A guest so happy about her chicken and shrimp fajita combo and whatever else she could throw on it pizza

    3 - The happy crowd (wine always helps)

    4 - Last but not least a nice desert pie, chocolate under the roasted marshmallows

      Thanks, Richie,
      A S'Mores Pizza! How cool is that! Everything looks great. That chicken and shrimp fajita pizza looks really good as well (I'd have a big smile on my face too ) Would you be willing to share how to put one together?

        How was the oven temp? Did you get 2 minute pizzas?

          Drake, oven temp stayed up above 850, but I was adding wood throughout the night, 2 minutes or less, worked well.

          rberg, She added lots to that pie. The chicken was seasoned pretty heavely and I grilled the chicken breasts before the party and shoved them in the fridge until the eparty. I used ample amounts of garlic powder, chile powder and Lousianna style seasoning (Tony's).

          The shrimp I seasoned in a bowl using same stuff, tossed them in olive oil, lime juice and a little beer then through them on a fajita style cast iron skillet that I had in the oven when it was pizza hot, and WOW, they jumped off that thing and were done before I could pull the skillet back out. Found a new toy to play with in the oven!

            Richie, excellent. Marinated shrimp popping on a hot cast iron skillet. That's something you can't do without a wood-fired oven!

            You can do something similar with stuffed mushrooms.
